Have you ever been on a walk and felt like you were in some sort of Nintendo Game whereas you have to pass obstacles to get to the next level?
Today's walk was one of these and there was only one player 'me'…..
Starting lives 3.
I headed down past Mount Field National Park to Tyenna, destination Marriot Falls and what a magnificent site it was, another favourite to add to the list.
Fog and lots of it created an eerie prettiness. The first 20 minutes of the track you walk alongside the roaring Tyenna River.
Hurdling and Limboing over and under fallen trees across the path.
This was the hardest level. Not being a lover of spiders I found walking through an unusual mass of cob webs quite daunting, my hiking stick came in handy to clear the way.
Mud. Some parts of the track are quite boggy and slippery. I lost two lives on this level.
Slippery logs and rocks around the falls.
Marriot Falls and my goodness what a reward it was!! I was not expecting such a magnificent waterfall as I hadn't heard a lot about it, Tasmania's little secret I think.
I spent about half an hour here admiring the majestic thunderous falls in all its glory.
